The Saudi Arabia General Investment Authority (SAGIA) have launched their digital license service where investment licenses will be directly sent to the company’s registered email in electronic format. The electronic copy of the license can be validated through a smart device or at SAGIA’s website instead of printing.
SAGIA developed the electronic licenses to improve their service efficiency and to save users time and effort through no longer requiring a visit to the business centre.
SAGIA have said, those that have a paper license are still valid, upon expiry an electronic license will be issued on renewal or amendment.
To verify the validity of the license, the QR code on each license can be scanned through a QR reader on a smart device. Otherwise, to verify the validity of the license, which includes the license data, such as the license number, status and information about the entity, can be done through this link.
